Wouldn’t that be nice. Hubs has tried in the past by ordering things from sites like Moonpig but we don’t really bother any more.
I don’t want things just for the sake of it. We have enough clutter without adding things we just don’t need. I love jewellery but I have quite a lot of costume jewellery and some better pieces I got from my mum. It was the one thing I took as I knew she wanted me to have it.
What I really need are some new clothes and a haircut.
OH and I decided not to buy into the commercialism of it all, we cooked together last night, I made salmon fillets with herbs baked in the oven in foil, with greens and boiled potatos, the salmon was delicious. OH made some steamed marmalade puddings , the ones without suet, made from ordinary cake mix, so nice. It was the recipe from Kirsties handmade Christmas, which you can adapt either for Christmas or any occasion. It was low key and just right.
There is a lot to be said for being part of a group, and the support and friendship that is gained from this.

We had a lovely card arrive yesterday from our youngest grandchild. Her childminder does a lot of different things with the children in her care so this is one lovely example. It was a card with a heart which our little one had finger painted red.
